South Carolina Shooting Suspect Released on Bail

via Columbia Police Department

Twenty-two-year-old Jewayne Price, who was arrested with two other people of interest in the South Carolina mall shooting that injured 14 people, was set a $25,000 bond.

He will be released to house arrest, but will be allowed to work while wearing an ankle monitor.

Price is charged with unlawful carrying of a pistol, but further charges will be added pending a review of the evidence.

“We catch people, they serve a little bit of time, they get out and they get right back doing what they normally do and that’s commit crimes,” Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said at a recent press conference. “The criminal justice system needs to do better.”

The two other adult males he was arrested with were released after authorities concluded they weren’t involved.

Police have so far determined that at least three people displayed guns and two firearms were used.

“We don’t believe this was random,” Columbia Police Chief W.H. “Skip” Holbrook said at a news conference on the shooting. “We believe they knew each other and something led to the gunfire.”

Price claims he shot in self-defense.

Sounds like Canada. In Toronto most of the shooters are black and the leniency toward these criminals is a bad joke – like the sham ‘justice’ system itself.

The sheriff is correct, they get out and commit more crimes. So why was he released?

This is insane. Suspected shooters get out on bail days after a crime while people who peacefully walked through the capital building after police waved them in still linger in jail after a year without charges being leveled.
